Thai Green Chicken Curry

I’ll admit it then…I’m addicted to Thai food! As a real ThaiFoodaholic I cook Thai food almost every week, whether it’s a Thai soup, stir-fry, noodles or curry.

It took me quite a long time to find a good Green Curry Paste. Sometimes they are too hot, sometimes too mild. When I have time, I prepare my own paste from scratch, but during the working week I have to stick with the quickest solution. This is the paste I’d recommend…
